You know, I really had no interest in getting into the middle of this dick-slapping contest but, seriously, there comes a time when one must take a stand. Over here, Jason is just being a dishonest wank when he writes of Robert McClelland:
Suffice it to say that I am not too concerned when a man who wrote "fuck the Jews" on his website accuses me of being anti-Semitic because of some misleading wordplay on his part:
So did Robert really write "Fuck the Jews" on his web site? Why, yes -- yes, he did. So let's look at the context, shall we?
I just took a can of spraypaint and wrote that message on the side of a building (not owned by Jews). Have I committed an act of antisemitism and if so why? Answers of "yes, just because it is" are not acceptable.
Can anyone answer this question or has everyone been so conditioned to accept, without explanation as to why, that whatever you're told is antisemitic must be antisemitic.
Well, how about that? As anyone with a functioning brain stem can see, Robert is presenting that expression in the context of a thought experiment and challenging his readers to address a reasonably meaningful issue without descending into moronic, sophomoric, right-wing talking points, if that's even possible these days.
Thusly, therefore and to wit, Robert is asking an uncomfortable but important question and Jason is being a total prat. Q.E.D.
P.S. If I accuse the Jewish Alan Dershowitz of being an amoral, conscienceless monster, does that make me anti-Semitic? Discuss. Be concise. Give examples. Show your work.
